Anula Maiberg was born in Israel and moved to NYC to pursue a career in photography in 2001. While working on her degree at the School of Visual Arts, she fell in love with Pilates through the classes and private sessions she took around the city. She decided to attend the Kane School for Core Integration (Kinected) to become a fully certified teacher and graduated in 2009. After several years teaching, she was accepted into the Kathy Grant Heritage Training Masters and graduated in 2014. In 2017, Anula started a world tour spanning the U.S., Canada, Europe, the U.K. and Australia. Anula is passionate about upholding the traditions and principles of Pilates while being able to update and personalize them for the needs of her students. She also feels strongly about volunteering her time to the LGBTQ community and believes Pilates is a wonderful movement modality and tool for healing in a supportive environment.
In this conversation Kathryn and Anula talk about Pilates, making the method more accessible and how to notice the assumptions we make about people when the walk in the door. Anula speaks about how she got started with Pilates and how it shaped her experience of her body. She tells the story of how she felt like an underdog growing up and how simply showing up is a statement. She also talks about the misconceptions people might have about Pilates and how it can be viewed as for people who are injured as opposed to people who are thriving. Anula also speaks about how she teaches a systematic approach while weaving in what feels right for her.
